SS13 Iridescent Trend at Lashes of London!

I'm really excited by the iridescent trend that is set to take over this Spring/Summer 2013! I already own a iridescent skirt from Motel that has me feeling mermaid-tastic, but my latest shimmery number is a sequin tunic dress by Lashes of London.

Hat: M&S - Dress: c/o Lashes of London - Belt: Topshop - Skull bead bracelet: Chlobo - Other bracelet: Mikey 

I instantly fell in love with this dress when I spotted it in their 'New In' section. I remember seeing heavily sequinned All Saints dresses a few years back but they were so heavy they felt like armour. I was pleasantly surprised when this one arrived, although it's a little heavier than your average sequin dress, it's still really comfortable and doesn't weigh me down at all.
Jeggings: Charley 5.0 - Boots: Dr. Martens

The yummy pink/green colour is perfect for S/S but since it's so cold at the moment I decided to pair it with some jeggings and my Dr. Martens. I like trying to make sequins more casual and wearable. Although it would look amazing with heels and a bit of a tan in the summer, I still think it'll work in the colder months if worn with something underneath.

One of the best things about the Pilosa oversized sequin dress is the fact you can flip the sequins the other way to create any design you want. The sequins are pale pink/peach on the reverse, online it's shown with a dramatic design but this time I chose a more subtle and sporadic print. It's nicely lined and also has shoulder pads which create a lovely silhouette. If the print is putting you off, you can wear it as one block colour by making the sequins face the same way.

At £95 it's definitely an investment piece but I think it's worth saving up for, it's unusual and really well made. It's also a great party dress that's guaranteed to get you noticed and more affordable than the armour sold at All Saints. If dresses aren't your thing, you can buy a (cheaper) cropped tee version too. Huzzah!

So are y'all a fan of the iridescent trend? Would you wear this?

  30. Hi! This dress is absolutely amazing! It looks so good on you! Love the idea of mixing it with Dr Martens and a cool hat!
    I've wanted it for a long time, and seeing it on you makes me want to buy it even more! Could you help me with the sizing please? I'm between a French 38 (UK 10) and a French 40 (UK 12), what do you think would be a better fit?
    Thanks a lot in advance!
